You “R” Beautiful

…everyday I see more and more people doing their own thing… learning to accept who they are… beginning to understand their own beauty… starting to fall in love with their own self… and I love it…

…I love seeing people walk confidently in their skin, with their style, as they are… as God created them…

…in my opinion beauty is not a product you buy, but something that comes from within… it starts with self love, self confidence, self respect…

…as complicated as we’ve made it, it really is as simple as being able to look at yourself in the mirror and to love what you see…

…and when you truly understand that you are already beautiful… you will be able to look at others and appreciate their beauty without feeling any kind of desire to look like them, to be shaped like them, to talk like them, to dress like them, or to have your hair done like theirs…

…why would you… want to be like someone else when who you are is already so damn perfect… Be you, do you, embrace you, love you… ~ Sean King

Happy Mother’s Day (2014)

Wishing a Happy Mother’s day to the amazing woman who birthed me, raised me, taught me to navigate these crazy shark infested waters as a young black man, showed me how to live with integrity even when doing the right thing goes against the grain, and served as a constant reminder that love is always there even when you find yourself in the middle of hell. You are appreciated, loved, and still greatly missed… but knowing that you have found peace is better than having you suffering here with us.

Happy Mother’s Day to all my grandmas that have found peace and to grandma that is still here blessing us with her love and wisdom. Happy Mother’s day to all my mamas that have embraced, loved, and treated me as their son. Happy Mother’s day to all my sisters who are raising the next generation of Kings and Queens; you are amazing. Happy Mother’s day to all of my Aunt’s, cousins, friends, and every other amazing woman out there making big contributions to the world by selflessly serving the role as our mothers.

Happy Mother’s Day to my angel, my Queen, my wife, the love of my life, the mother of my little King’s, and the amazing woman who I have vowed to spend my eternity with. Everyday with you I am reminded of God’s eternal grace.

Thank you to you all…. I am, we are, it is all because of you… ~ Sean King

Amazing Happenings

I’ve learned that something amazing happens everyday; you just have to learn to see it. It can be something as simple as a smile, a hug, a conversation with a friend, or even the reality of your dreams manifesting. It can be a kind word to a stranger or being on the receiving end of a timely blessing. Today I experienced all of the above and then this…

I called AT&T to report an issue with my UVerse. The lady on the phone had an accent that I knew was from a place far away from me. In between her going through her script, we exchanged pleasantries and I learned she was from the Philippines. I asked how her family was doing and how she was holding up? She appreciated the concern. I could tell from her response that the tragedy was taking its toll on her, but she was proud and determined to keep pushing forward. We talked about the United States, her desire to pursue her dreams of coming here, her Aunt in California, and the differences in culture. I needed my TV fixed and she needed someone to have an off script conversation with. She was able to resolve the issue and I was able to offer kind words and prayers to someone in an area in need of healing. It was only one person, but it felt meaningful. It never ceases to amaze me, all the creative ways that we are moved around in and out of each other’s lives.

I will continue to pray for my brothers and sisters in the Philippines. Love… ~ Sean King
